When it comes to spring/summer trends, there are so many I want to try out this year. Usually, I tend to stick to pieces I know I’ll wear on repeat, but this year I’m being tempted by cutouts, bright shades of tangerine and pink and even the revival of mini skirts and denim. There is one area of my summer wardrobe I try not to shake up, though, and this is the swimwear section. Because we all know, a great-fitting swimsuit can be hard to come by. So when it comes to a new one-piece, I stick to shapes, brands and colours I know suit me. And often this heads in the direction of one colour: black.
I recently wore this Alexandra Miro swimsuit in Ibiza, and it fits like a dream. You can remove the belt, it has hidden support that feels like a crop top underneath and it doesn't squash your boobs like some strapless swimsuits do.
Like the LBD, black never fails to make an impact, yet stay classic all at the same time. Of course it’s also known to be flattering, and now I spend a little more on well-fitting good-quality swimsuits, I like to buy them in a shade I know I’ll never tire. Also, I like to know they won’t go see-through as soon as I take a dip in a pool (somewhere exotic, hopefully.) So, to make swimwear shopping stress-free, these are the best black swimsuits that will never let you down.
